tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC January 14, 2017 12:37am-1:38am PST
[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- sarah paulson from broadway's "hamilton," actor and comedian, taran killam and writer mark andreyko music from tori kelly featuring the 8g band with fred armisen and craig finn. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. >> seth: good evening, everybody. i'm seth meyers. this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] wonderful. wonderful to hear. in that case let's get to the news. well, christmas eve is just five days away and hillary clinton will definitely be visited by three spirits.
[ laughter ] maybe more. the electoral college met today to cast their ballots for president and vice president. it's the first college donald trump has gotten into without a letter from his father. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] but he got in. he definitely got in. at his year end press conference on friday president obama said the democrats lost the election because they are quote characterized as coastal-liberal, latte sipping, politically correct out of touch folks. he then literally took a sip of a latte. [ laughter ] level 10 trolling right there. president obama recently said he and donald trump most likely have different definitions of political correctness and just as likely different spellings. [ laughter ] i would like to get another r in there and i love a c.
so give me a couple of cs. john mccain criticized president obama yesterday and said he had no strategy and no policy on dealing with russia's recent hackings. oh, he has a strategy, all right. it's called running out the clock. [ light laughter ] now let me see i guess that would be your problem. [ cheers and applause ] china last week -- china last week seized a u.s. navy drone submarine from international waters in the south china sea, which was a real bummer for the guy operating it. [ laughter ] i got bad news. i got bad news, barak. i took out the drone. i know you told me not to but the chinese got it. oh, that's all right. that's their problem. the chinese government said this weekend that it will return the u.s. naval drone submarine that it captured last week. it's how they told us that is
surprising. [ laughter ] in bed. nursing home facilities have reportedly been using robotic therapy cats to sooth their residents. said nursing home residents, screw that, i want weed. robot cat, this is terrifying. [ laughter ] and finally the price of gold increased today after falling to its lowest level in almost a year which can only mean one thing. trump is remodeling his bathroom. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen we have a fantastic show for you tonight. she is nominated for a golden globe, for her performance in the fx mini series, "american crime story: the people vs. o.j. simpson," our friend sarah paulson is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] he just landed a role in broadway's "hamilton" beginning in january and contributed to an incredible comic book for charity, taran killam, and writer, mark andreyko, are here
to talk about "love is love" and we will have music from singer-song writer tori kelly. [ cheers and applause ] you're here on a great night tonight here at "late night." before we get to all that, there's been a lot of talk about the threat donald trump poses to democratic norms but it's not just trump, as we found out last week from a political crisis in north carolina, where republicans sought to strip power away from the incoming democratic governor before he takes office. for more on this it's time for a closer look. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: the electoral college voted today and confirmed that donald trump will be our next president and good for him. the voters spoke and he won fair and red square. now -- [ laughter ] of course, more voters chose hillary clinton by about 3 million votes, but unfortunately for her, our election rules are more complicated than a game of quidditch. sure, she got more points but
trump got the golden snitch. [ laughter ] but still, by the rules of our electoral system, donald trump won and our democracy depends on accepting the legitimacy of our opponents and the votes of people who disagree with us. which is why what happened last week in north carolina is so troubling. >> it is being called a legislative coo in north carolina. the gop controlled legislature making a brazen push to sharply reduce the power of the new governor, democrat roy cooper, before he even takes office. >> what the republican led simply and legislature is trying to do is pass some bills and laws to actually curtail the incoming democratic governor's powers. >> it's one thing to lose a close race and be bitter about it. it's an entirely different one to try to jam through changes to strip away your opponents powers. >> seth: so, republicans lost and now gop legislators are stripping power away from the democratic governor before he takes office. that's like losing a bet and paying with monopoly money. $500. just like we said. sorry it's tiny and orange.
[ laughter ] for example, four years ago when republican became governor the legislature expanded the number of appointments the governor gets to make, from 500 to 1500. now that a democrat is taking over, the legislatures has suddenly decided to cut that number from 1500 to 425. and then there's this, in north carolina the governors party controls state and county election boards. but they gop changed the rules to allow democrats to chair the state board of elections in odd numbered years and allowed a republican to chair the board in even numbered years. why did they give democrats odd numbered years? because in odd number years, there are no elections it's like winning yankee season tickets for all games between november and march. now it should be noted that one of the reasons the republicans even have the massive majority in the state legislature they needed to pass these laws in the first place, is that as a court earlier ruled many of our districts are racially jury mannered and unconstitutional. basically, they drew some districts to group together as
many african american voters as possible to dilute their political power. take a look at north carolina's congressional map. now take a look at district 12. it's so weirdly shaped they can't even fit the 12 in it. [ laughter ] it looks like a rorschach test. what do you see in this shape? i don't know, it's either a dragon of 300 years of institutional racism. [ laughter ] so needless so say, the republican power grab prompted protests at the state capital. with protestors knocking on the doors of the senate chamber demanding to be heard. police even going to far as to arrest santa claus. >> i asked you to leave the building. >> i understand. >> okay. >> this is my building. >> alright sir, follow this officer please. >> they're arresting santa claus. >> santa! >> seth: they arrested santa claus. though to be fair he is wanted on like 8 billion counts for breaking and entering. [ laughter ] some republican lawmakers lashed out of protest despite the fact that they were peaceful.
in fact, the protestors were so peaceful that one of them tried inviting a police officer over to her house. >> how are you doing? >> i'm good. how are you today? >> good. >> i'm glad. i want you to come for christmas dinner at our house. >> thank you, ma'am. >> i do need you to leave the third floor right now though. >> i know you do, but you know i can't. >> okay. let me tell you if you don't leave i'll have to arrest you for second degree trespassing. >> i understand. i'm good with that. >> you're good with that? okay, i'll give you one more chance. will you please leave? >> nah. >> i need you stand up. i'm going to arrest you for second degree trespassing. >> seth: that is the most polite police-protester interaction i have ever seen. instead of handcuffs he locked her up in friendship bracelets. [ laughter ] the executive director at the north carolina republican party, dallas woodhouse, defended the new laws by listing all of the other things the incoming democratic governor roy cooper will still be able to do once he is in office. >> roy cooper still going to be the governor. he still gets the keys to the mansion at some point on january 1st. he still gets to use the big ball room. >> seth: so he can't do anything
but he gets a mansion and a ballroom. does he also get a typewriter so he can work on his novel? [ laughter ] he also argued in multiple interviews last week that it was okay for republicans to do this because democrats tried similar, though much less triconian measures in the past. and said anyone that thinks republicans wouldn't try to strip the incoming governor of his powers is just being naive. >> do you think it was wrong what the democrats did, then? >> chuck, i think wrong is always in the eye of the beholder of who's ox is getting gored. that is the way it's always been in these things. >> so what you're saying, in this case two wrongs make a right? >> what i would say is that legislatures overtime on both sides of the aisle have deemed that they loath executive power but they'll give a little more to their guy but when the other side gets in they'll scale it back. hey, guess what chuck, next thing you know you'll say they're gambling in casa blanca. i mean, come on. >> seth: did you have playing cards ready during the entire
interview? was he holding them the hold time? you're not allowed to have props. are you the carrot top of politicians? this was in no way a naked power grab. a naked, power, grab. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] now just to give you an idea of how deeply divided north carolina is, politically, that guy dallas woodhouse has a brother, brad, who's a democratic operative in north carolina. they famously went on cspan together in 2014 and a caller asked them to put aside their political differences. >> this is steve's show, dallas. >> raleigh, north carolina. >> hey, somebody from down south. >> you're right i'm from down south. >> oh, god, it's mom. >> and i'm your mother and i disagree that all families are like ours. i don't know many families that are fighting at thanksgiving.
>> is this really your mother? >> yeah, it's our mom. >> i was very glad that this thanksgiving was a year that you two were supposed to go to your inlaws and i'm hoping you'll have some of this out of your system when you come here for christmas. >> seth: i guess she's still upset about the time her son dallas gerrymandered the turkey. [ laughter ] i think it's fair to say that like the woodhouse boys, mom we're all hoping for a peaceful christmas and this is the time of the year when we take stock of all the things we take for granted. things like living in a stable healthy democracy. but democracy isn't something that succeeds on its own. if it's going to survive we have to fight for it. we can't just sit on our ass and let the fat cats grab our rights. [ cheers and applause ] that's the real constitution. this has been a closer look. we'll be right back with

episode of every television show that is on tv. [ light laughter ] i think that's impossible, but you stand by that statement. >> fred: oh, i watch everything. >> seth: okay. [ light laughter ] everything. you can say right now. you just said it to impress me, and it's not true. >> fred: i watch everything. >> seth: okay. >> fred: all the way through. >> seth: okay.

[ light laughter ] >> fred: great, do it. yes. >> seth: okay. this show is "incorporated" on syfy. >> fred: oh, "incorporated." do you know it? >> seth: no. >> fred: you've never seen it? >> seth: i have not. >> fred: the pilot, you've not seen -- >> seth: i have not seen any of it? >> fred: "incorporated," it is -- it's very high-paced, very fast. it's like the fashion world, and people just run through the halls, you know? like, with, like, different fashions, and, like, they're about to do a big show, it's, like, photographers -- a lot of fast talking. it's, like, a -- just a very fast --
it's, like, a fashion -- >> seth: give me some sample dialogues. >> fred: "you're gonna walk in here?" "no." "you got to walk the other way." "what? excuse me." [ laughter ] "get out of this office." "what?" "get out of this office now. now, now! come back in here! come back in the office! get out of his office!" that kind of thing. [ laughter ] so the bosses are really bossy, and, like, all the people, like, working for them are, like, spilling coffee. it's a lot, like, of nervous people trying to make, like, the bosses happy. >> seth: okay, gotcha. and this is on the syfy network? >> fred: on the syfy network, yes.

[ cheers and applause ] ♪ ♪
♪ >> how are you? >> seth: you know, i am so good. one of my -- one of the great things about 2016 for me is one of my favorite people, you, was in my one of my favorite shows, "people v. o.j. simpson." >> you're not sure what it's called. >> seth: "o.j. simpson." >> yeah, yeah.

[ laughter ] >> seth: are you -- you've talked about marcia clark a lot. she was -- you brought her to the emmys. >> i don't know who -- i don't know who you're talking about. yeah. >> seth: no, but she's -- >> yeah, uh -- >> seth: do you ever -- are you running out of things to talk about, or are you happy to still be -- >> no, it's a kind of wonderful
thing because in the beginning when i was starting to work on it, people had so many negative opinions about her. >> seth: yeah. >> and i would try to convince them otherwise that she was a sort of formidable, great lady and had an enormous heart. and they were like, "yeah, yeah. she got the bad hair, the bad skirts. she lost." you know. >> seth: yeah. >> and now there's been a lovely narrative shift, and people have a lot of feeling and good will towards her. and i feel very proud to be associated with that, so -- >> seth: she is wonderful. she was here. we had her as a guest. >> you had her on? >> seth: yeah, it was fantastic -- >> oh, wow. >> seth: to talk to her. and again, i think it's so strange to have somebody that my opinion of her has completely shifted because of this television show. >> yeah. >> seth: but is it true that you have never watched it -- >> nope. >> seth: because it would be too sad? >> i think -- it sounds really actressy and crazy, but i think i thought somehow we were going to change the outcome of the verdict. >> seth: uh-huh. sure. [ laughter ] >> because, you know, we were up there. and a lot of our dialogue in the courtroom was actually lifted, certainly the big moments the, you know -- >> seth: mm-hmm. >> closing arguments, opening arguments, all that stuff that certain witnesses that were famously on the stand. so, we had actual dialogue listed from the transcripts.
and so, we're up there, a lot of times, wearing the exact things that they were wearing. >> seth: sure. >> and we just felt like if we just pitched it in a particular way, it might have -- it was a sort of fantastical idea. but sterling, who played darden, we also both felt that -- he's watched it, though, and i have not. >> seth: was it then, the day you filmed the verdict, was that the hardest day? >> that was a hard day. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah, it was a hard day, and i think it would be very, very hard for me to watch because i don't want to watch her lose. >> seth: right. now, this is ryan murphy, who you've worked with on "american horror story." >> yes. >> seth: on many seasons of that -- >> yeah, six now. >> seth: six of that. >> yeah. >> seth: and this art -- do people ever ask you, "do you get tired of working with him?" >> yeah. i think they think, you know, "don't i want to spread my wings and fly?" as they say, but i have gotten to play a two-headed lady, a blind witch, a heroin addict, and marcia clark in all in, like, four or five years. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> i don't know where i would go where i would feel quite as challenged and quite as excited as i would. >> seth: he's a fantastic guy to have in your life. >> i think that he's done very right by me. i can say that, sure. >> seth: i'm thrilled about this as well. mindy kaling was here last week, and we were talking about
"oceans eight." >> yeah. >> seth: this is the full-female cast heist movie -- >> yes. >> seth: that is happening, filming right now in new york -- >> yeah. >> seth: and, but, it's a star-studded cast. you've got -- >> we've got anne hathaway. we've got kate blanchett. we have mindy. we've got sandy bullock. we've got helena bonham carter, awkwafina, and rihanna, who is not famous at all. >> seth: no. >> no. [ laughter ] that's sort of vague. >> seth: mindy was saying rihanna is the one that draws the most. >> yeah, you can't -- if you're standing next to her and paparazzi are taking a picture, like, "wow, i think they're going -- yeah, yeah." really, it's because rihanna is standing next to you. >> seth: yeah. >> they're not interested in you at all. yeah, we had a kind of funny -- it's been a really -- it's i know people want there to be some kind of crazy drama going on between all the women because how could so many women be in a room and actually get along? [ light laughter ] it's like they totally -- the people are so depressed. they're like, "oh, you, you -- what is it like?" i'm like, "they're great." "oh, they're great?" "yeah, they're great?" "really?" they look so depressed. but, we had this, like, one moment where all of us sitting around and someone mentioned that there was a big online sale, and everyone, like, whipped out their phones. and we were all trying to look at things. and i found, like, a couple of things.
and i was showing it. rihanna next to me, and i was like, "what do you think of that?" and she was like, "yeah, yeah." and then, i showed her a pair of pants i thought were the most hideous pants i have ever seen, and she was like, "i think those are so cool." and i was like, "me too." [ laughter ] "i think those are so cool." because there's no one -- i mean, rihanna is the definition -- >> seth: rihanna decides everything. >> yeah, and there's a picture in the definition of cool, and it's like, there's rihanna just like -- >> seth: and you came into this as a rihanna fan. >> yeah. every time i look at her, i'm like -- ♪ work work work work work ♪ [ laughter ] >> seth: has she ever heard you? >> no, but a couple of times i have gotten, like, sandy bullock gave me the side eye, like -- [ laughter ] >> seth: you were -- >> i'm like - ♪ diamonds "oh, sorry." like, it's just -- every time i see her it just starts. >> seth: yeah, well there you go. >> it's bad. it's bad. it's not good. >> seth: look, that's all right. i think when this is over, rihanna's going to talk about how cool you were. >> i'm not sure that that's true. [ laughter ] totally not true, though. >> seth: one place i know that you maybe have a little bit of trouble keeping your cool, you do not like to fly. >> no, no, sir. >> seth: never. >> i really, you know, don't have a choice. you do have to -- >> seth: yeah. >> if there was another way to do it, i would do it. >> seth: you'd really do it if you would? >> if i could teleport -- >> seth: okay. >> not be a part of the whizzing
through space thing would be really good. >> seth: got you. >> it's a giant metal tube with wings, and you're -- >> seth: no, no, no. don't ruin it for the rest of us. [ light laughter ] but you -- part of your procedure, you like to say hi to the pilot. >> oh, yes. >> seth: okay. >> i will not fly unless they let me in the cockpit to have a little word with them before we go. [ light laughter ] >> seth: and how does that interaction go? >> it's always the same. >> seth: uh-huh. >> i always say, "how long have you been doing this?" [ light laughter ] and they always make the same joke, like, "oh, like today is my first day." and i'm like, "ha, ha, not funny." [ laughter ] "it's just not funny to me at all, and get your little pilot humor." and, yeah. >> seth: i would like to think an adult woman who needs to meet them wants comedy. [ light laughter ] >> they also offer to give me wings all the time. like, "you want some wings?" and i'm like, "no, i don't want animal crackers either. get out of here. it's just not good." >> seth: and have -- i heard there were a few occasions where they tried to do odd things to make you feel comfortable. >> on a certain airline, which is united -- >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> they sometimes leave channel nine open to listen to air traffic control -- >> seth: i remember, yeah.
>> which i quite like. most people think, "why would you want to know that?" but to me, i like knowing the lay of the land and that there are a hundred planes in the air, and everybody talking to everybody. but the pilot started whispering my name, like every four -- so he would be like, "this is united 449." [ whispering ] "sarah." [ laughter ] i was like -- and i think he thought that it was going to make me feel relaxed, like, you know, he's making contact with me. and instead i just thought, "first of all, freaky, creepo." [ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> "second of all, focus on giving our coordinates. that's all that needs to be told to air traffic control." [ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> and the whole time -- i'm not kidding, on the air -- [ whispering ] "sarah." [ laughter ] and we got off the plane, he was like, "so, did you hear me?" "yeah, yeah, i did. i totally heard you." >> seth: the weird thing is also a hundred other people heard you. >> yes, exactly. [ light laughter ] everybody heard you. >> seth: weird pilots wondering -- [ whispering ] >> "sarah." >> seth: has anything ever happened to you where you've ever met a pilot, where you have said, "i'm out of here"? >> no, i've never gotten off the plane really -- >> seth: yeah. >> but i have been dissatisfied with the way they've chatted with me. >> seth: okay, got you. >> i like for them to be cheerful and friendly. >> seth: do they ever ask you to sit down? do they ever -- >> sometimes they won't let me
into the cockpit. [ laughter ] >> seth: really? do they come out? >> they're like -- yeah, they're like, "we'll have that conversation in the galley." and i'm like, "really?" i -- you know. or they offer to let me sit in their seat, which is always, like, a nice fur, like, sheep-skin thing for their -- >> seth: yeah. >> comfort and all of that, but i don't want to sit in your seat and possibly have my ass bump, like, something that then causes something serious to happen. >> seth: right. and then, they're like, "we're coming. sarah!" >> "sarah's ass!"

have this project to work through the emotions that i feel as though we were all -- >> yeah, absolutely. part of the reason of doing it instead of just giving money to charity, was that it allows us as artists to kind of process our feelings about it and our grief and our defiance and our hope. and, you know, the title is "love is love" and that book is completely generated from the love of all the generous people that did such great work. >> seth: and one of the cool things about it is, no story, no piece of art, nothing is longer than two pages. >> yeah. >> seth: so you have all these very succinct expressions of love and of healing throughout the book. this is one you did with george perez, correct? >> yeah. i got to write for george perez. for the non-comics people, he's like the orson wells of comics. >> seth: yeah. >> getting to work with him is crazy. >> seth: and -- so this is sort of a beautiful piece of art that you guys did together. taran, you wrote one and who'd you get to work with here? >> yeah, yeah. so barry crane is the artist who did this "deathstroke" comic. because dc and idw co-published this. nobody got paid anything, it cost zero. even the paper was free, and
100% of the proceeds go to equality florida? >> equality florida and they're earmarked specifically the people that were effected by orlando. >> seth: that's fantastic.

which is different from other types of depression. in clinical studies, once-a-day latuda was proven effective for many people with bipolar depression. latuda is not for everyone. call your doctor about unusual mood changes, behaviors, or suicidal thoughts. antidepressants can increase these in children, teens, and young adults. elderly dementia patients on latuda have an increased risk of death or stroke. call your doctor about fever, stiff muscles and confusion, as these may be signs of a life-threatening reaction, or if you have uncontrollable muscle movements, as these may be permanent. high blood sugar has been seen with latuda and medicines like it, and in extreme cases can lead to coma or death. other risks include decreased white blood cells, which can be fatal, dizziness on standing, seizures, increased cholesterol, weight or prolactin, trouble swallowing and impaired judgment. avoid grapefruit and grapefruit juice. use caution before driving or operating machinery. being there for the people i love means i get to be a part of life's little moments. and that means so much to me.
